Day 4 of Publish Your Kindle Book This Week.
When you read the first post of this series on publishing a Kindle book this week, I’ll bet your brain started cramping and your writer’s block kicked in, huh?
When you learned that you were going to be able to put those pencils away and use content you already had on your blog, I heard your sigh of relief all the way in Illinois.
So let’s recap what you should have accomplished so far:
- You have perused you blog posts and chosen a topic for your book and a title. Plus you selected the blog posts you wanted to use as short chapters in your book.
- You’ve created your ebook cover or outsourced it to be done for you.
- In Microsoft Word, you’ve written your title page, copyright page and dedication page (optional)
- You’ve added your chapters in the order they go, inserting a page break at the end of each one.
- You’ve carefully edited as you went so that your book reads like a book and not a half-a$$ed blog post with bad grammer and lousy spelling. You’ve also taken out the call to actions asking your blog readers to leave a comment, double-checked that your links were working, and written a few lines here and there where needed for a smooth transition into you next chapter.
- You’ve written your conclusion and the about the author page.
Way to go! And that was in just 3 days. Next time you will be able to do that in 1 or 2 days if you really want to.
So on to the next steps…
- STEP 11
Proof read it, then proof read it again.
Read it out loud. You’ll find mistakes your mind and eyes missed when reading it in your head. I guarantee it.
- STEP 12
Create a table of contents. In an earlier post I failed to tell you that your chapter titles need to be a heading in Word for it to automatically create your table of contents for you. Simply go back and highlight each title at the beginning of your chapters then under “Home” in Word go to “Styles” and select one you like. After you’ve done that, go to your first chapter page and put your courser before the first letter of your title and in Word go to “Insert” then “Blank Page”. Next in Word go to “References” then “Table Of Contents” then “Automatic Table 2”.
BAM! That’s all there is to it! Your table of contents will magically appear.
